P0708-1132 Approved by Council 17.03.08 SWANSEA UNIVERSITY
 

Summary: 1
P0708-1132 Approved by Council 17.03.08
SWANSEA UNIVERSITY
FREEDOM OF SPEECH CODE OF PRACTICE
Principles
1. It is a fundamental principle of Swansea University (hereinafter referred to as "the
University") that on its property and in its activities there should be freedom of
speech within the law. This principle is reinforced by the Education (No. 2) Act
1986 which requires the University to take such steps as are reasonably
practicable to ensure that freedom of speech within the law is secured for its
members (who shall include its students, employees, members of the Council and
members of the Court) and for visiting speakers. The same Act imposes a duty to
issue a Code of Practice to set out the procedures and conduct required of those
organising or attending meetings or other activities. While the detailed provisions
of this Code shall apply primarily to organised and/or to formal activities, it should
be understood that the principles expressed in the Code are also intended to
protect the right to freedom of speech and freedom of association during social,
private or recreational activities.
Authority and Jurisdiction
2. This Code of Practice is intended to ensure all lawful forms of freedom of speech
